Today's Painting - A Cardinal
Today's oil study is a cardinal. I've had a hard time working on my larger gallery paintings the last couple of weeks and decided it is because I've not been doing these morning oil studies. I've done a couple of studies this week and the larger pieces are starting to come a little easier. Who knows why artists go through these spells? I tell my students that you've got to work through it....if your brain thinks it can get away with 'not being in the mood to paint', it will pull this trick more often to get out of the studio.
Tomorrow's oil study may be a female peacock - we'll see!
